Is better than the original? Absolutely not. Did I expect it to be? Not a chance. Did it have it’s moments? Yes. Seemed a bit tamed but enjoyable. The bloopers were actually funnier than the featured film. Overall a bit better than “meh”.
This was a tough watch due to the brutally honest depiction of pain that is dealt with in the lives of three young Korean characters and their families. It really makes you appreciate the things that you take for granted in your life. The film centers on how local Koreans are impacted with American military presence. There is quite a lot of difficult scenes to watch such as animal abuse, domestic violence, abortion, and rape. The emotions of the actors are top notch as it makes you feel their pain.
